14 November : European Day of Action and Solidarity - Large scale trade union mobilisation for jobs and solidarity and against austerity
In response to an appeal by the European Trade Union Confederation (ETUC), a large-scale mobilisation will be held across Europe on 14 November. The aim of this European day of action and solidarity is to call upon Europe’s leaders to demonstrate their determination to really get to grips with the deterioration in employment and to respond to the growing social anxiety felt by Europe’s citizens. Austerity is a total dead end, and must be abandoned. Social protection and wages can no longer be sacrificed. This is a social emergency, and it is time to listen to what the citizens and workers have to say, and to change course.
The Action Day on 14 November will include several types of actions: strikes, demonstrations, rallies as well as designed to raise awareness.
